Of course an offline mode would break the game...


Actually, it would. You take an offline character, hack/mod in some godly equipment, then take him online. What would happen? Of course, Blizzard could make countermeasures for that sort of thing, or players would report that behavior and then the person would get banned. But that takes extra effort on Blizzards part; putting employees on watch for hacked character reports, making sure they're legit, and following through with the banning process.

Or they could do what they did with Diablo 2 and just have offline characters and online ones. But then people will whine saying they can't bring their lvl 99 uber Barb that they put 9001 hours into offline into the online game.

OMG if I can't play DIablo soon I am going to wet myself and push my wet pants against a frozen metal pole (I live in Canda so its like -30c right now)


I live in northern Canada (northern as above 60°), in Inukjuak to be exact, and it's nowhere near -30. More like 1° right now, it's raining outside.

I am simply reading this thread because it amuses me how many people seem to think that Blizzard is out to get them.

Do you seriously think that it's as simple as hitting a 'restart' button somewhere and the issue is fixed? (That's a rhetorical question, don't answer!)

Anyways, thanks for the heads up Blizz. I suppose I'l go back to work and I'll see if the game is up later.

Funny how Diablo says that the battle.net service is down for maintenance but Starcraft2 still says temporary outage, which one is?

Heads up? What heads up? LOL

All I care is that they freeze auction timers in the event of this kind of downtime.

If was simply on the login page under "Breaking News" I would say "Oh, ok. . . Well maybe I should eat something or take a nap before i have a seizure or a memory lapse."


exactly but that would make you, a player, a happy and has nothing to do with making the employees happy or the companies pockets fatter!


Well the employees being happy is important but isn't there a simple balance such as putting the problem out there where everyone wanting to play can see it and decide to play something else while leaving all the ragers who well like raging to the forums??

Yes and no - You will have to hit Alt-F4 from the main menu to access the Hardcore Complaint Module where you can then plead your case

He's only level 1, not a big deal if he did die.
